In a day and age where ‘American Idol’ and heavily studio-enhanced music runs rampant, some good old fashioned, straight ahead, unapologetic heavy metal is just what the doctor ordered. And on the full-length debut by True Witness, ‘The Human Condition’ (releases on April 10th via Dark Star Records) 100% headbanging tunes are offered up throughout.
Comprised of Allen James (Vocals), Randy Gonet (Guitar), Brian Gordon (Bass), and Tom Miller (Drums), True Witness hails from Illinois, and took their time crafting their debut offering ? going as far as tracking nearly two albums worth of material, so they could select strictly the crÃ¨me de la crÃ¨me for ‘The Human Condition.’ As a result, such standout tunes as “The Face of Evil,” “Waking with the Dead,” and “High Time” pack quite the metallic punch.
Once ‘The Human Condition’ is released, the quartet is planning on launching a full U.S. tour in the summer, will be thoroughly promoted at rock radio, and will film a music video (the song has yet to be determined). And another key selling point ? the ten-track album is going to be modestly priced at $11.99, which will obviously attract many a headbanger on a budget. True Witness will be bringing the rock in 2012?prepare yourself!
